A weighing scale is one of the most important accessories one should possess if he/she is health conscious. We all know the fact that “A healthy mind in a healthy body”. We have to keep our body healthy to have a healthy mind. But, during the past few years, people are more careless about their health and they don’t prefer keeping their body mass in check. One of the main reasons is because they do not have any time to spare and they are not ready to sacrifice their time or control their diet.
According to many experts, a weighing machine at home can make a user-health conscious, he/she can frequently check their weight and do a self-assessment. There are many people who have changed their lifestyle and have escaped diseases and obesity just because they did a self-assessment on the basis of their body weight readings. However, this does not mean that every fat people led an unhealthy life or being fat is not something appreciable, it is more of a personal choice and we personally do not discriminate human beings on such basis.
A weighing machine is best useful if it is kept in the bathroom, experts suggest that if the user checks his/her weight just after their morning dump and without eating any food or drinking water, and we can acquire the exact body weight of the user. If you can’t believe this try doing it and see the difference. This is where bathroom weighing scales come into play.
Like I mentioned above, experts suggest that to acquire the accurate and exact weight of your body, you should wake up in the morning, go have a dump and then measure your weight on your bathroom weighing scale.
PS: you should be careful not to consume anything and this includes water also.
Now, with all the basic things being told, let’s look deep into the things about bathroom weighing scale. Here are some of the key factors and things you should consider while purchasing a bathroom weighing scale in India.
- Types of bathroom weighing scale
- Weighing range/capacity
- Units and display
Type of bathroom weighing scale – Bathroom weighing scale like the normal weighing scale also come in three types,
- Analog bathroom weighing scale
- Digital bathroom weighing scale and
- Body fat and weight bathroom scales
Analog bathroom weighing machines are those mechanical traditional weighing machines that display the weight readings in dial mode or in other words, displays the weight readings in analog on a meter. However, this type of weighing machines are least used today because after frequent use the scale will have zero errors which will have to be calibrated every time before use. One of the major problems is that the readings might vary according to the side from which you check the reading.
Digital bathroom weighing machine – This type of weighing machine is more preferred and in-demand these days. This type of machine displays the body weight reading digitally on LCD displays and the displayed reading will be precise and exact. One of the notable things about digital bathroom weighing machine is that it most commonly will not have any zero errors after frequent use.
Body fat and weight bathroom scales – This type of weighing machine is also commonly referred to as bathroom scales, it is the most advanced version of the bathroom weighing machine/scales. Unlike the above two type of weighing machines, this scale can also measure the body fat, bone density, BMI, and body water percentage.
So, now, you know the types of bathroom weighing scales available on the Indian market right now, now, it I leave it to you to decide the type of weighing machine you should purchase. But, from my point of view and experience, it is always better to purchase a digital bathroom weighing machine rather than the advanced weighing machines.
Weighing range/capacity–You know the types of bathroom weighing machines available on the market, you should also remember that each type of weighing machine will have a maximum weighing range and this is different for each type of weighing machine. An analog weighing machine comes with a capacity 100 kg, 120 kg, 150 kg, on the other hand, a digital weighing machine comes with capacity 100 kg, 120 kg, 150 kg, 180 kg. On the other hand, the body fat and weight bathroom scales come with weighing range as same as that of digital bathroom weighing scales. So, it is very important to check the weighing range of the type of bathroom weighing scale you buy.
Environment–Bathroom weighing scale is designed to withstand and survive the humidity, moisture, and temperature in the bathroom. This is why bathroom weighing machines/scales cannot be used anywhere else. So, always be careful to purchase the bathroom weighing scale only if you are planning to place it in the bathroom or else consider buying normal waterproof weighing machines.
Units and displaysize–Bathroom weighing machines display weight in the unit kilograms, but, there are some devices that have options to change units of weight. However, most of the devices do not have such options, so, if you need a device with such options check the specification before purchasing the device. In the same way, the display size also varies with product models, check the size of the display and purchase the product accordingly.
Skid-proof–Skid-proof feature is one of the most required features in a bathroom weighing scale. Always check if the device you purchase has rubber bush or any other type of skid-proof setup on the product.
Shape – Bathroom weighing machine/scale come in two common shapes, rectangular and round shape. Both shapes have the same function and same working so, it is more of a personal choice and so I leave it up to you.
